A follow-up convergence from our last gathering in the Summer! There is NO CHARGE for this event, although donations are welcome. All food will be provided for FREE – procured from the abundance around us using the strategies we will share! You are encouraged to spend the night on site, also for no charge (indoor or outdoor). SCHEDULE from last one to give you idea of format. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=243219482715884&set=gm.283870531965457&type=3&theater Also write up from the last convergence: http://wisdompractitioner.blogspot.com/2016/06/rethinking-permaculture-summer-solstice.html Please join us for a weekend convergence where we will discover how to transform our lives to be more in line with our heart’s compassionate and harmonious nature. Traditional permaculture has great insights into more sustainable ways to grow our own food – we aim to expand the vision of sustainability to include the practical changes we can make to our daily lives, right now, to create less harm to our world, and to foster a more ecologically sensitive, and more joyfully vibrant, human culture. We will cover techniques to grow more of our own food, but also look at the daily consumer habits and lifestyle patterns that we take for granted, and to explore how they might be transformed to free us from the oppressive and unhealthy aspects of our society. We will consider what it means to practice “spiritual permaculture” – living in a way that honors all living beings, and all the diversity of life on our planet, as our family. In this light, we will focus on practices that don’t confine or cause suffering to other animals for our own (human) benefit. Whether experienced permaculturists, or the newly curious, all are welcome to attend. If you have something you’d like to teach that is in line with our vision, anyone is welcome to facilitate a class – let us know what you’d like to offer! (There will be an opportunity to add classes on the first night of the gathering.) We aspire to offer the kinds of workshops where participants will learn the skills, and receive the support, that can lead to actual, practical, life changes immediately after the weekend. • Veganic farming strategies • Reducing dependence on the money system • Fostering community sharing • Meditation, movement, and sound practices to support a sustainable life • Classes focused on creating real, practical changes in our daily lives, to be implemented now!

Join Ceasefire Oregon on Sunday, September 25, from noon to 6 PM, at Pioneer Courthouse Square LET’S ROCK IT TO STOP IT! September 25th was designated by Congress as the Day of Remembrance of Murder Victims. In 2007, Congress designated September 25 as the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims. And while two out of every three victims are killed with a firearm, the day of “remembrance” is the only thing Congress has done to acknowledge this loss. We are respectful of what the day stands for, but we must demand that our legislators take action to stop this carnage. Who is presenting “The Concert Across America to End Gun Violence”? Our technology partners are Celly and Cloud Four, two great technology companies in Portland. Our co-sponsor is Augustana Lutheran Church. Presenting organizations are Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility, Moms Demand Action, The Brady Campaign of Portland, Oregon NOW and Gun Owners for Responsible Ownership. Why are we hosting this event? *To honor our loved ones taken from us by gun violence. *To educate people about gun violence in Oregon. (For example, did you know that 85% of all gun deaths in Oregon are suicides? That’s one per day.) *To raise awareness about what can be done to reduce gun violence–even if Congress won’t act.

With the powers of love and unity we can move mountains. Only until recently has the atrocities at Standing Rock come into the scope of the masses. Our government has an ugly history of conquest and murder, and a very unhealthy relationship with Big Oil. The time has for us to join together to fight the good fight.

Screening of GAINING GROUND, a new documentary film on food justice. GAINING GROUND tells personal stories of rural and urban farmers making extraordinary changes to feed their local communities sustainably grown produce and grains. The documentary interweaves the lives of urban farmer-activists in inner city Richmond, California; a small family farm in rural Oregon converting from a commodity dairy to a sustainably grown produce farm; and a large commodity grass seed and Asian wheat farm in the Willamette Valley transitioning to growing organic grains. The film personalizes issues of class, gender, race and environmental justice, rooting them within the narratives of compelling individuals. While the movie is sober about the obstacles to creating change, it points the way toward hope. Advanced tickets may be bought at http://hollywoodtheatre.org/gaining-ground/ For more information go to: mediaprojectonline.org

Join us in speaking up for people ­focused transportation in Oregon. Oregon needs to adopt a transportation package that reflects the priorities of Oregonians. Safe routes for walking and bicycling and plenty of convenient transit options benefit Oregon communities. Our neighbors can get to their jobs, children can walk and bike safely to and from school, drivers face less congestion on the roads, and the air is easier to breathe. If quality transportation in Oregon is important to you, join us on September 23 in Salem for an important public hearing. We need to show lawmakers that this issue is important to us. ** After you RSVP here=> http://bit.ly/25HOGtj you will hear from organizers with more information. ** Thank you for helping us ensure Oregon is spending our money wisely on a modern transportation system that provides options to all of our community members!https://www.facebook.com/RenewOregon/events# https://www.facebook.com/events/851409781669887/

Rewilding 101: Ancestral Ways of Living for a More Resilient Life Taught by Peter Michael Bauer Mondays, September 12 - October 3 || 7:00-8:30 pm Hatch Space || 2420 NE Sandy Blvd. Four weeks, $91 || Space is limited to 20 students Climate change, environmental destruction, patriarchy, privilege, consumerism, health issues, lack of community, the disconnect from nature, world hunger, population growth...all are rooted from the same problem: the domestication of humans and of the wild over the last several thousand years. How did we get into this mess? From conservation biology to the paleo diet, people are realizing that the neolithic period has led humanity astray. Rewilding offers us a way out. This class is an intense crash course on what rewilding is, how you can rewild, and why you must. You will be able to apply these principle directly to your life, here and now. Join us on a journey through the ecological, anthropological, and psychological principles behind rewilding. We'll discuss the myths we've constructed about prehistoric peoples, the problems that came with the innovation of agricultural civilization, and the benefits of indigenous horticulture. You will finish the course aware of the various ways that people are rewilding, as well as the barriers that stand in the way. You will see how rewilding is viewed by the mainstream, and how to integrate it into your life in a way to that is respectful to indigenous populations. Week 1: Exploring Prehistory When did we lose our connection to the natural world? What is "pre" history, and why should we care about it? What is our "common knowledge" of cavemen? Plus, we'll review a timeline of human evolution. Week 2: Defining Rewilding What is our concept of ideas like "wild" and "wilderness"? How are people using the term "rewilding"? How do hunter-gatherers change the landscape? We'll also start to look at things like community-building, land access, and how rewilding is both an environmental and social justice movement. Week 3: Hazards of Rewilding We'll address how fear, economic status, legalities, cultural appropriation, and privilege relate to rewilding and how to go about it in a safe, helpful, and respectful way. Week 4: Rewilding in Action What does rewilding look like? What are some barriers to rewilding? We'll look at examples of current rewilders and rewilding communities and examine the possibilities for rewilding in the future, and taking things to the next level. Peter Michael Bauer is an environmental educator, author of the book Rewild or Die and founder of Rewild Portland.

Attention Oregon! Skip across the border for some SW Washington style restoration work! We will be focusing on the removal of invasive plant, shining geranium in a deforested area in the center of the woods at LeRoy Haagen Park. People enjoy hanging out in this area and too frequently leave their litter behind. The hope is to return the area to its intended purpose of habitat and a nature trail for walkers and joggers. This is a great activity for young children and the young at heart. Please contact if you feel you have special needs but would still like to volunteer. Please contact as well if you are interested in coordinating these monthly efforts at the park. There is something for nearly everyone. Activities include: Invasive Plant Removal, Native Planting, Probably some light litter removal.

The Problem with Privilege: Bias, Fragility + Taking Action to End Racism Taught by Christine Dupres Tuesdays, September 6-27 || 6:30-8:00 pm MarrowPDX || 7515 N Alma Ave. Four weeks, $150 || Space is limited || Scholarships available Acknowledging privilege proves to be a crucially important factor in understanding how structural racism and other "-isms" continue to exist. But understanding that you have privilege doesn't mean you understand what to do about it. Ignoring your privilege, however, allows racism and other -"isms" to thrive. This class is designed to help you be a better, more effective ally, especially if you're feeling stuck and ineffective. Fragility has uneven corollaries to non-white/non-male perspectives, but we will be addressing cultural privilege as a whole. This class will help you understand, identify, and interrupt implicit bias and white fragility, mechanisms that keep privilege in place. Note: This course is best suited to those who are familiar with and practiced in the basics of ally work. Week 1: Core Concepts for the Ally Racism and what it means to unpack privilege. Week 2: Defining Fragility Within the Rubric of Power and Privilege White fragility and how to recognize it. Where does white fragility show up in Portland? Week 3: Coalition of Communities of Color + Multnomah County Discussion of the Multnomah County Profile Reports from the Coalition of Communities of Color and more thoughts on white fragility in PDX. Week 4: Further Use of Concept and Tools Power protects itself. Other fragilities and ways we can interrupt them. Christine Dupres (Cowlitz/Cree), Ph.D., is a writer, teacher, and Native leader. She is the author of Being Cowlitz: How One Tribe Renewed and Sustained Its Identity (University of Washington Press). She has taught at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Oregon.

While the occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge is still making headlines, the earlier groundbreaking collaborative approach to complex land use issues in Harney County has largely been overlooked. That effort involved local ranchers, environmental groups, and federal agencies, and set a precedent for working through similar land management issues in Oregon and the west. In this first annual public lecture, Daniel Kemmis—nationally distinguished author and Wallace Stegner Prize winner—will discuss this new innovative approach to management of western lands and how it pertains to the Malheur Wildlife Refuge Comprehensive Conservation Plan, the Sage Grouse Conservation Plan, and other western land management conflicts. Sponsored by the Collaborative Governance Graduate Certificate, part of PSU’s College of Urban and Public Affairs. This new on-line 15-credit program is aimed at providing current public officials and managers with opportunities to sharpen their collaborative skills. DANIEL KEMMIS Daniel Kemmis is an author, a long-time public servant, and currently an Associate of the Charles F. Kettering Foundation. Mr. Kemmis is a former Mayor of Missoula, Montana, and a former Speaker and Minority Leader of the Montana House of Representatives. He is the author of 3 books: Community and The Politics of Place; The Good City and the Good Life; and This Sovereign Land: A New Vision for Governing the West. He is currently working on a fourth book, under the working title of Citizens Uniting.

Create Your Own Quest: How To Imbue Your Time with More Meaning, More Joy + More Connection Taught by Melea Seward Wednesdays || September 7th - 28th || 7:00 - 9:00 pm SE Uplift || 3534 SE Main St. Space is limited to 25 participants. In Create Your Own Quest, we will discover ways to imbue your limited time on this planet with more joy, more meaning, and more connection. We will use TIME, ATTENTION, CONNECTION, and CURRENCY as constraints to help you create your own quest. In literature and films, quests often involve extensive travel and adventure, but your quest can also happen in your backyard, in your neighborhood, in your city, or on the web. Whether you want to visit every National Park in your lifetime, meet everyone who shares your first name in your zip code, or paint more, this course may be for you. Want to revive and pursue a dream that has faded? This is a great course to revisit and explore what is possible. Cost: It's $50 to enroll. At the end of the course, you will pay a second installment, the amount of which is completely up to you ($0 +), but reflects the value you received and the effort you created. Week 1: Thinking Bigger: Assessing What Is + Exploring the Possible As a culture, it seems we’re obsessed with life hacks, habits, and getting more done while spending less time on the doing. As adults, we tend to organize our lives around ATTENTION (what we pay attention to), CONNECTION (who we pay attention to), TIME (how we organize our days, weeks, month, years), and CURRENCY (how we pay for our lives, usually in some equation that factors in time and money). In this first class we will assess what is important to us and explore the possible. Week 2: Motion, Preparation + Divergence Luck favors the prepared. In the second week, we will look at famous and not-so-famous quests — we will break down how ordinary people have used constraints of time, space, place, money, and more to create more luck, or what I like to call, serendipity engines. It is difficult to stumble on an idea while seated, so we will look at ways to create more movement in your everyday life and prepare for the outcomes you’re interested in. Week 3: Commitment, Activation + Optimizing Connections How do you commit to an idea? How do you choose? In week three, through guided homework, readings, class discussion, and small group work, we will work on optimizing your connections with people and ideas. Week 4: Surprise + Delight Week four will be a co-facilitated class between the participants. You have to show up to see what happens. Melea Seward, Professional Generalist, is a communications and strategy consultant, speaker, improvisational storyteller and writer. She creates time-bound, rule-based projects and games that explore performance in everyday life. Most recently, she created Board of Us, a playful facilitation tool that she uses in her consulting work with clients ranging from soloprenuers and small business owners to established nonprofit organizations and multinational companies, including NBC, HBO, Shore Fire Media, Elixir Design and Girls for Gender Equity.

Direct Action Organizing Taught by Kent Smith Thursdays || September 8th - 29th || 7:00 - 8:30 pm Taborspace || 5441 SE Belmont St. Four weeks, $89 || Space is limited. 10 tuitions waivers are available to members of marginalized communities who would like to teach the course material to their community. Contact coordinatorpugspdx.com for info + instructions. Make a significant contribution to Social Justice by winning concrete change at both the local and systemic levels. Learn the principles of Direct-Action Organizing: how to mobilize the grassroots to carry out effective campaigns that win. Organizing is the act of mobilizing a community for action around its concerns, and for the long term. Direct Action is grounded in non-violent Civil Disobedience--in using the Power the people have to interrupt injustice--from boycotts and protest marches to building takeovers, sit-ins and the calculated breaking of unjust laws. Direct Action Organizing itself is the best way to show others how to Organize for Direct Action: teach through doing. Using a mix of readings, videos, discussion and experiential learning exercises, this course will cover the history of Organizing in America (and in Portland) while de-centering the Whiteness that has historically accompanied it. Participants will sketch and plan out their own idea for a Direct-Action Organizing campaign. You will finish this course with skills and strategies to plan, organize and implement effective protest campaigns, and to teach others to do the same. Week 1: Why We Fight What are our personal interests in Direct-Action Organizing? (If you're not sure about yours, this class is a safe place to figure it out.) We'll share our expectations, needs and goals for the course and discuss how our group will define “Organizing for Direct-Action”. We'll also take a brief trip through the history of Organizing. Week 2: Principles of Direct-Action Organizing What is the different between a Leader and an Organizer? Is it true that Organizing a community is the best way to teach its members how to Organize? We'll reflect of some of the giants of Organizing history and share ideas for de-centering Whiteness in Organizing. Week 3: Envisioning Protest Campaigns What are the typical elements of an Organizing Drive? Break-out groups will discuss the social justice concerns nearest and dearest to them and individuals begin to explore a critical approach to crafting a campaign around their social justice priorities. Week 4: What We Want to Do How might we go about Organizing a community for change? Look ahead while hearing about further resources and education for the aspiring Organizer. We'll reflect on the course and share some of the actions (if any) we are committed to taking, moving forward. Kent Smith is a former Organizer with ACORN and with the Oregon Student Association.

Decoding Plants: Seeing Urban Flora with New Eyes Taught by Mulysa Melco Saturdays, September 10th - October 1st || 9:30-11:30 am Meets at Overlook Park Picnic Shelter || 1599 N Fremont St. Four weeks, $100 || Space is limited to 20 students. Have you ever walked around your neighborhood, or gone on a hike, and wished you knew the names of the plants you saw? Have you ever wondered how they fit into the ecosystem and what uses they have? Deepen your connection with the place we live by tuning in to the world of plants and learning how the flora of our bio-region is in flux. Understanding the species we share our home with positions us to be advocates for conservation and offers tools for reimagining our personal and collective relationships to nature. In this class, you’ll learn to recognize 12 common plant families and how to identify species using a plant key. By the end of the course, you’ll have created your own guide to the major plant families – and you will have fresh eyes for the plants that live right outside your door. Week 1: Plant Patterns Explore taxonomy (how plants are classified according to their relationships) and morphology (the form and parts of a plant), and meet our first three plant families. Week 2: Micro Explorations Practice using a key to identify plants in a diverse garden setting. Using drawing as a way to understand our subject, slow down to observe some of the intriguing details that differentiate species. Learn the key recognition characteristics of three more families that include many important food plants. Week 3: Macro Observations Walk to an oak/madrone woodland and discuss how local plant communities in Portland have changed over time, why some plants are considered weeds and what future plant communities in the bio-region could look like. Get the scoop on three plant families that are essential for wildlife habitat. Week 4: Plant Uses Learn three final families that include plants that are essential for humans as medicine. Discuss ethnobotany and examples of ways plants have co-evolved with animal species in the human-managed landscapes of the Willamette Valley. Where to Meet Us: Overlook Park picnic shelter. 1599 N Fremont St, Portland, OR 97227. 1 block West of Overlook Park MAX station. What to bring: Sketch book (6x6” or larger, unlined white paper) pencil (No.2), eraser, pencil sharpener optional: a plant guide arranged by family or a Pacific NW botany book. What to wear: Dress for the weather and bring sun/rain protection, drinking water and whatever you need to be comfortable walking outdoors. Mulysa Melco is an ecological landscape designer, horticulturist and artist with a lifelong passion for plants and exploring our connection with the land.

SPACE IS THE PLACE: Afro-Futurist Film A true underground classic. Witness: not-of-this-earth music, the funky righteousness of Sun Ra, cinematic excellence and be prepared to alter your destiny...This movie is truly mind blowing. Afro-Futurist ritual drama blended - explosively - with the iconography of Shaft. Suggested $7-10, no one turned away for lack of funds! https://www.facebook.com/events/1786952218187455/# Space Is the Place is an 85-minute Afrofuturist science fiction film released in 1974. It was directed by John Coney, written by Sun Ra and Joshua Smith, and features Sun Ra and his Arkestra. A soundtrack was released on Evidence Records. Space is the Place exists in a multiverse of genres - a militant blaxploitation free-jazz absurdist sci-fi cosmodrama. It seems to have begun as a double homage, Jim Newman's desire to document Ra's visionary music merging with John Coney's love of fifties low budget science fiction movies like First Space Ship on Venus. Ra's lifetime vision of expanding the cosmic consciousness of African Americans was superimposed on the street life of the early seventies Oakland 'hood . "It was a time of dislocation, " recalls Coney, placing the film in the context of the Black Panther movement and the radical paranoia of the Vietnam years. Afro-Futurist ritual drama blended - explosively - with the iconography of Shaft. Produced by Jim Newman and directed by John Coney. Script by Joshua Smith , in consultation with Sun Ra.

How to Ally with Portland's Urban Native Americans Taught by Christine Dupres (Cowlitz/Cree), Ph.D. Mondays, October 3-24 || 6:00-8:00 Marrow PDX || 7515 N Alma Ave. 4 weeks, $150 || Space is limited Native Americans face tricky sociopolitical and structural inequities in today's Portland. What does it mean to be an ally? Explore the issues impacting Native Americans, as well as the history behind them, and gain a language for supporting the lives and cultures of Native people. This experimental, silly, and interactive class will crush stereotypes and raise hell. In a fun way! You will finish this course better informed and better equipped to be part of a better future for Native Americans. Week 1: The Context for Urban Natives of Portland Who are we? Where are we? What are we doing now? Understand the unique characteristics of Urban Indians compared to other non­white urban populations, and to their reservation counterparts. Learn about federal policy toward Native peoples like the Doctrine of Discovery and its role in US expansion. We'll look at Portland's Native Indians as a case study and consider the contemporary impact of policies upon Native people. Week 2: Issues Facing Portland's Urban Native People Using a recent report from the Coalition of Communities of Color, we will look at some of the data describing the inequities Portland's Native people face. We'll also look at historical precedents, such as the termination of Oregon Tribes and relocation of reservation peoples to cities in the 1950s. Week 3: Quantum and other Quagmires: Let's Get Real Is there an appropriate means to recognize and define just what and who is an Indian? To obtain federal recognition and protection, American Indians, must constantly prove their identity. The current and past standard of “proof” has been blood quantum. Explore the role of cultural identification, the uses of quantum on other racial groups, and possible alternatives. Week 4: Brass Tacks:­ Being An Ally to Urban Natives In our final class, we look at contemporary ideas of privilege, considering the complexities of intersectionality and grappling with the idea of “white fragility.” We'll find a language and a framework for being an ally. Christine Dupres (Cowlitz/Cree), Ph.D. is a writer, teacher, and Native leader. She is the author of Being Cowlitz: How One Tribe Renewed and Sustained Its Identity (University of Washington Press). She has taught at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Oregon.

Gilad Atzmon Returns to Portland Monday October 3rd, 2016 7pm at the Clinton Street Theatre, 2522 SE Clinton St, Portland, A documentary about Gilad will be followed by a brief talk and Q and A followed by a few songs by Gilad and our talented local jazz musicians. $10.00 at the door $8.00 in advance. GILAD AND ALL THAT JAZZ Director: Golriz Kolahi Country: UK | Israel Year: 2012 Runtime: 61 minutes Gilad Atzmon is one of modern music's best saxophonists, and one of the most controversial public opponents of Israel. A gentle giant, warm, charismatic and somewhat shy, Gilad is a complex character. Born into a pro-Zionist family and serving briefly in the first Lebanon War, Gilad had a dramatic turnaround; he quit the army, picked up his sax and exiled himself to London, declaring himself an enemy to the Israeli state. Since then he has produced some of the modern era's greatest Jazz albums, and collaborated with Ian Dury, Paul McCartney and Sinead O' Connor. In music he is a 'feisty improviser' as one critic put it, comparing him to the likes of Charlie Parker. In his political and philosophical ideas, he is blunt and outspoken. His ideas on Israel and "Jewishness" have upset many people, to the extent that he has been labelled a holocaust denier and an anti-Semite. In Gilad's life, music and politics are inseparable. The film follows Gilad in the most flourishing time of his career, as he records albums with Robert Wyatt, the blockheads, and gigs with Nigel Kennedy; gets invited to TV programs and panel events all over the globe; pleases his supporters and admirers, while seriously offending his opponents to the point of receiving death threats and intimidation against the venues he plays and speaks in. GILAD AND ALL THAT JAZZ offers a unique insight in to the life, ideas, music and motivations driving the great Saxophonist.

Rewilding 101: Ancestral Ways of Living for a More Resilient Life Taught by Peter Michael Bauer Mondays, September 12 - October 3 || 7:00-8:30 pm Hatch Space || 2420 NE Sandy Blvd. Four weeks, $91 || Space is limited to 20 students Climate change, environmental destruction, patriarchy, privilege, consumerism, health issues, lack of community, the disconnect from nature, world hunger, population growth...all are rooted from the same problem: the domestication of humans and of the wild over the last several thousand years. How did we get into this mess? From conservation biology to the paleo diet, people are realizing that the neolithic period has led humanity astray. Rewilding offers us a way out. This class is an intense crash course on what rewilding is, how you can rewild, and why you must. You will be able to apply these principle directly to your life, here and now. Join us on a journey through the ecological, anthropological, and psychological principles behind rewilding. We'll discuss the myths we've constructed about prehistoric peoples, the problems that came with the innovation of agricultural civilization, and the benefits of indigenous horticulture. You will finish the course aware of the various ways that people are rewilding, as well as the barriers that stand in the way. You will see how rewilding is viewed by the mainstream, and how to integrate it into your life in a way to that is respectful to indigenous populations. Week 1: Exploring Prehistory When did we lose our connection to the natural world? What is "pre" history, and why should we care about it? What is our "common knowledge" of cavemen? Plus, we'll review a timeline of human evolution. Week 2: Defining Rewilding What is our concept of ideas like "wild" and "wilderness"? How are people using the term "rewilding"? How do hunter-gatherers change the landscape? We'll also start to look at things like community-building, land access, and how rewilding is both an environmental and social justice movement. Week 3: Hazards of Rewilding We'll address how fear, economic status, legalities, cultural appropriation, and privilege relate to rewilding and how to go about it in a safe, helpful, and respectful way. Week 4: Rewilding in Action What does rewilding look like? What are some barriers to rewilding? We'll look at examples of current rewilders and rewilding communities and examine the possibilities for rewilding in the future, and taking things to the next level. Peter Michael Bauer is an environmental educator, author of the book Rewild or Die and founder of Rewild Portland.

At one time or another, many of us wish to talk about death. Whether it be thoughts surrounding our own impending death, feelings about the death of a loved one, or opinions on how death is viewed in our society, a Death Cafe is a place to have open-minded, open-hearted and open-ended conversations about death and dying in a setting free of agenda, stigma and ideology. What’s it like to attend a Death Cafe? - A Death Cafe is a place to discuss whatever is on your mind regarding death - Discussion is 100% participant-generated, and there is no agenda or curriculum - Discussion takes place in small groups with a volunteer facilitator In the last 5 years, there have been more than 3,000 Death Cafes in over 35 countries. This international movement hopes to increase awareness and generate discussion surrounding the topic of death and dying, and help people make the most of their (finite) lives.

How to Ally with Portland's Urban Native Americans Taught by Christine Dupres (Cowlitz/Cree), Ph.D. Mondays, October 3-24 || 6:00-8:00 Marrow PDX || 7515 N Alma Ave. 4 weeks, $150 || Space is limited Native Americans face tricky sociopolitical and structural inequities in today's Portland. What does it mean to be an ally? Explore the issues impacting Native Americans, as well as the history behind them, and gain a language for supporting the lives and cultures of Native people. This experimental, silly, and interactive class will crush stereotypes and raise hell. In a fun way! You will finish this course better informed and better equipped to be part of a better future for Native Americans. Week 1: The Context for Urban Natives of Portland Who are we? Where are we? What are we doing now? Understand the unique characteristics of Urban Indians compared to other non­white urban populations, and to their reservation counterparts. Learn about federal policy toward Native peoples like the Doctrine of Discovery and its role in US expansion. We'll look at Portland's Native Indians as a case study and consider the contemporary impact of policies upon Native people. Week 2: Issues Facing Portland's Urban Native People Using a recent report from the Coalition of Communities of Color, we will look at some of the data describing the inequities Portland's Native people face. We'll also look at historical precedents, such as the termination of Oregon Tribes and relocation of reservation peoples to cities in the 1950s. Week 3: Quantum and other Quagmires: Let's Get Real Is there an appropriate means to recognize and define just what and who is an Indian? To obtain federal recognition and protection, American Indians, must constantly prove their identity. The current and past standard of “proof” has been blood quantum. Explore the role of cultural identification, the uses of quantum on other racial groups, and possible alternatives. Week 4: Brass Tacks:­ Being An Ally to Urban Natives In our final class, we look at contemporary ideas of privilege, considering the complexities of intersectionality and grappling with the idea of “white fragility.” We'll find a language and a framework for being an ally. Christine Dupres (Cowlitz/Cree), Ph.D. is a writer, teacher, and Native leader. She is the author of Being Cowlitz: How One Tribe Renewed and Sustained Its Identity (University of Washington Press). She has taught at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Oregon.

SEX and BROADCASTING is a human and humorous look at New Jersey's WFMU, an independent radio station that refuses any programming boundaries. Most of its disc jockeys are unpaid volunteers, working for their love of surprising, spontaneous radio. As the film unfolds, WFMU reaches a crisis: With six months until their next fundraising marathon, they are almost out of money. Can WFMU stay on the air and stay true to its independent spirit? SEX AND BROADCASTING explores the past and present of this essential, weird and utterly unique American institution while telling the gripping, yet comical, story of its fight for survival. An inside look with subplots about The Best Show, Jewish Moments in the Morning known lovingly at JM in the AM, and the life of Ken Freeman. https://www.facebook.com/events/1666454393672625/

This workshop will review key intercultural communication theories and concepts, and how to apply them in communication between adults. Much of what is taught in graduate diversity classes stems from social justice and multicultural traditions. The intercultural perspective is complimentary; where the other traditions tend to focus more on the individual or group characteristics in isolation, the intercultural perspective focuses on the interaction. Intercultural communication allows us to greatly expand our skills, and go beyond empathy, understanding, and “do’s & don’ts” type interventions. This workshop is designed for those working in “helping professions”, such as counselors, therapists, and educators, as well as for staff and leadership in schools, clinics, nonprofits and other organizational settings, and for community members seeking to improve their communication, work more effectively, and build better relationships with diverse populations.

How to Ally with Portland's Urban Native Americans Taught by Christine Dupres (Cowlitz/Cree), Ph.D. Mondays, October 3-24 || 6:00-8:00 Marrow PDX || 7515 N Alma Ave. 4 weeks, $150 || Space is limited Native Americans face tricky sociopolitical and structural inequities in today's Portland. What does it mean to be an ally? Explore the issues impacting Native Americans, as well as the history behind them, and gain a language for supporting the lives and cultures of Native people. This experimental, silly, and interactive class will crush stereotypes and raise hell. In a fun way! You will finish this course better informed and better equipped to be part of a better future for Native Americans. Week 1: The Context for Urban Natives of Portland Who are we? Where are we? What are we doing now? Understand the unique characteristics of Urban Indians compared to other non­white urban populations, and to their reservation counterparts. Learn about federal policy toward Native peoples like the Doctrine of Discovery and its role in US expansion. We'll look at Portland's Native Indians as a case study and consider the contemporary impact of policies upon Native people. Week 2: Issues Facing Portland's Urban Native People Using a recent report from the Coalition of Communities of Color, we will look at some of the data describing the inequities Portland's Native people face. We'll also look at historical precedents, such as the termination of Oregon Tribes and relocation of reservation peoples to cities in the 1950s. Week 3: Quantum and other Quagmires: Let's Get Real Is there an appropriate means to recognize and define just what and who is an Indian? To obtain federal recognition and protection, American Indians, must constantly prove their identity. The current and past standard of “proof” has been blood quantum. Explore the role of cultural identification, the uses of quantum on other racial groups, and possible alternatives. Week 4: Brass Tacks:­ Being An Ally to Urban Natives In our final class, we look at contemporary ideas of privilege, considering the complexities of intersectionality and grappling with the idea of “white fragility.” We'll find a language and a framework for being an ally. Christine Dupres (Cowlitz/Cree), Ph.D. is a writer, teacher, and Native leader. She is the author of Being Cowlitz: How One Tribe Renewed and Sustained Its Identity (University of Washington Press). She has taught at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Oregon.

Witness: not-of-this-earth music, the funky righteousness of Sun Ra, cinematic excellence and be prepared to alter your destiny...This movie is truly mind blowing. Afro-Futurist ritual drama blended - explosively - with the iconography of Shaft. Suggested $7-10, no one turned away for lack of funds! https://www.facebook.com/events/1786952218187455/# Space Is the Place is an 85-minute Afrofuturist science fiction film released in 1974. It was directed by John Coney, written by Sun Ra and Joshua Smith, and features Sun Ra and his Arkestra. A soundtrack was released on Evidence Records. Space is the Place exists in a multiverse of genres - a militant blaxploitation free-jazz absurdist sci-fi cosmodrama. It seems to have begun as a double homage, Jim Newman's desire to document Ra's visionary music merging with John Coney's love of fifties low budget science fiction movies like First Space Ship on Venus. Ra's lifetime vision of expanding the cosmic consciousness of African Americans was superimposed on the street life of the early seventies Oakland 'hood . "It was a time of dislocation, " recalls Coney, placing the film in the context of the Black Panther movement and the radical paranoia of the Vietnam years. Afro-Futurist ritual drama blended - explosively - with the iconography of Shaft. Produced by Jim Newman and directed by John Coney. Script by Joshua Smith , in consultation with Sun Ra.

Consider yourself at home with Lionel Bart’s classic musical based on Charles Dickens’ novel, Oliver Twist. The Tony and Olivier Award-winning show is one of the few musicals to win an Academy Award for Best Picture and is widely hailed as a true theatrical masterpiece by actors and audience members alike. The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family.

Incarcerating US is a feature-length documentary that exposes America’s prison problem and explores ways to unshackle the Land of the Free through vital criminal justice reforms. With 2.3 million people behind bars, the U.S. has the largest prison population in the history of the world. Through dramatic first-hand accounts, expert testimony, and shocking statistics, Incarcerating US asks fundamental questions about the prison system in America: What is the purpose of prison? Why did our prison population explode in the 1970s? What can make our justice system more just? The film begins with a brief overview of U.S. prisons and the flawed policies that fueled unprecedented overincarceration. In many cases, these laws exacerbate problems they were designed to solve. Through both empirical evidence and the eyes of those tragically affected by the system for committing minor crimes, we see the failures of two major initiatives: the War on Drugs and mandatory minimum sentences. Incarcerating US tells the story of America’s broken criminal justice system through the eyes of those who created it, those who have suffered through it, and those who are fighting to change it. After decades of failures, now is the time to unshackle the Land of the Free. Incarcerating US Director: Regan Hines Country: United States Year: 2016 Runtime: 84 minutes

Through dramatic first-hand accounts, expert testimony, and shocking statistics, Incarcerating US asks fundamental questions about the prison system in America: What is the purpose of prison? Why did our prison population explode in the 1970s? What can make our justice system more just? The film begins with a brief overview of U.S. prisons and the flawed policies that fueled unprecedented overincarceration. In many cases, these laws exacerbate problems they were designed to solve. Through both empirical evidence and the eyes of those tragically affected by the system for committing minor crimes, we see the failures of two major initiatives: the War on Drugs and mandatory minimum sentences. Special admission suggested $7-10, no one turned away for lack of funds. https://www.facebook.com/events/1698238597168077/

Friends of Trees is working in partnership with the Tualatin River Watershed Council to help restore the Bonita natural area to a diverse and healthy riparian forest ecosystem. The site was recently cleared of a nearly impassable thicket of English hawthorn and Himalayan blackberry, and is on its way to being restored as a mixed hardwood riparian forest. This event will focus on hand pulling English ivy from the existing native trees onsite to protect them from being over taken by this shade-tolerant invasive plant. There will be a great sense of immediate gratification at the end of this event! Please arrive around 8:45am to be registered and assigned to a crew. The planting will start promptly at 9:00am.

Consider yourself at home with Lionel Bart’s classic musical based on Charles Dickens’ novel, Oliver Twist. The Tony and Olivier Award-winning show is one of the few musicals to win an Academy Award for Best Picture and is widely hailed as a true theatrical masterpiece by actors and audience members alike. The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family. Performances are October 21 – 30, 2016 at Ridgefield High School, 2630 S Hillhurst, Ridgefield WA, 98642. Tickets are on sale now at journeytheater.org or by calling 360.750.8550.

How to Ally with Portland's Urban Native Americans Taught by Christine Dupres (Cowlitz/Cree), Ph.D. Mondays, October 3-24 || 6:00-8:00 Marrow PDX || 7515 N Alma Ave. 4 weeks, $150 || Space is limited Native Americans face tricky sociopolitical and structural inequities in today's Portland. What does it mean to be an ally? Explore the issues impacting Native Americans, as well as the history behind them, and gain a language for supporting the lives and cultures of Native people. This experimental, silly, and interactive class will crush stereotypes and raise hell. In a fun way! You will finish this course better informed and better equipped to be part of a better future for Native Americans. Week 1: The Context for Urban Natives of Portland Who are we? Where are we? What are we doing now? Understand the unique characteristics of Urban Indians compared to other non­white urban populations, and to their reservation counterparts. Learn about federal policy toward Native peoples like the Doctrine of Discovery and its role in US expansion. We'll look at Portland's Native Indians as a case study and consider the contemporary impact of policies upon Native people. Week 2: Issues Facing Portland's Urban Native People Using a recent report from the Coalition of Communities of Color, we will look at some of the data describing the inequities Portland's Native people face. We'll also look at historical precedents, such as the termination of Oregon Tribes and relocation of reservation peoples to cities in the 1950s. Week 3: Quantum and other Quagmires: Let's Get Real Is there an appropriate means to recognize and define just what and who is an Indian? To obtain federal recognition and protection, American Indians, must constantly prove their identity. The current and past standard of “proof” has been blood quantum. Explore the role of cultural identification, the uses of quantum on other racial groups, and possible alternatives. Week 4: Brass Tacks:­ Being An Ally to Urban Natives In our final class, we look at contemporary ideas of privilege, considering the complexities of intersectionality and grappling with the idea of “white fragility.” We'll find a language and a framework for being an ally. Christine Dupres (Cowlitz/Cree), Ph.D. is a writer, teacher, and Native leader. She is the author of Being Cowlitz: How One Tribe Renewed and Sustained Its Identity (University of Washington Press). She has taught at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Oregon.

New City Initiative began in 2010, with the purpose of fostering communities where all people achieve their full human potential. We envision a new community of mutually transformative relationships with communities across the greater Portland area with the power to end the intergenerational cycle of homelessness and poverty. On any given night in Multnomah County, 2000 children experience homelessness either on the streets, in shelter, doubled up with family or friends, at a transitional housing facility or in an apartment paid for by rent assistance. Homelessness and other adverse and traumatic childhood experiences cause these children to face greater barriers and obstacles in their education, employment and relationships. On October 30, we will be running and walking to end the cycle of homelessness and trauma for these children and their families. Watch how you can make an impact! https://youtu.be/xTCEo6C02sE https://www.facebook.com/events/1076885002387471/

The original Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award-winner, Stephen Schwartz, and it took the world by storm. Boasting a score with chart topping songs, Godspell JR. is a sensation that continues to touch audiences. A group of disciples help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of storytelling techniques, a hefty dose of comic timing, and current real-world references. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, then resounding in triumphant resurrection, Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life in a fresh way. It is sure to delight and encourage you. Performances are November 11 - 20, 2016 at Alder Creek Middle School 13801 SE Webster Road, Milwaukie OR 97267.

The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father’s favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar’s wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph’s gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock ‘n’ roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless. Performances are November 11 – November 13, 2016 at The Venetian Theatre, 253 East Main Street, Hillsboro OR 97123. Tickets are on sale now at journeytheater.org or by calling 360.750.8550.

The original Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award-winner, Stephen Schwartz, and it took the world by storm. Boasting a score with chart topping songs, Godspell JR. is a sensation that continues to touch audiences. A group of disciples help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of storytelling techniques, a hefty dose of comic timing, and current real-world references. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, then resounding in triumphant resurrection, Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life in a fresh way. It is sure to delight and encourage you. Performances are November 11 - 20, 2016 at Alder Creek Middle School 13801 SE Webster Road, Milwaukie OR 97267.

The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father’s favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar’s wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph’s gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock ‘n’ roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless. Performances are November 11 – November 13, 2016 at The Venetian Theatre, 253 East Main Street, Hillsboro OR 97123. Tickets are on sale now at journeytheater.org or by calling 360.750.8550.
